Last week, I visited Rosicrucian Park in the Rose Garden area of San Jose with friends to walk the grounds and take photos of the Egyptian-style buildings and doors. The museums were closed, and very few people were in the gardens making for a relaxed and peaceful experience. It’s been over five years since I last visited the park, and not much has changed. Here are a few photos from my visit.

From Wikipedia: The Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum (REM) is devoted to ancient Egypt, located at Rosicrucian Park in the Rose Garden neighborhood of San Jose, California, United States.
It was founded by the Ancient Mystical Order Rosae Crucis (AMORC). The Rosicrucian Order continues to support and expand the museum and its educational and scientific activities. The museum holds the largest collection of ancient Egyptian antiquities in the Western United States, and is located next to the Rosicrucian headquarters.

Love the style of the pillars! Great to see you back at Thurs. Doors:)
Thanks! More doors to come. 😊
Looks like a beautiful and interesting place. I’d love to see the museum as I’ve always been interested in ancient Egypt.
It sure is an interesting place. The Egyptian museum has a nice collection. I’d like to go back one day and visit the museum again.
Wow, I’ve never been there. What wonderful doors and landscaping. I will definitely put it on my list next time I’m close to San Jose.
It’s worth a visit. Hope you get to see it one day soon. 🙂
Love those pillars.
